James Paxton fields, pitches way to loss to Phillies
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mariners rookie James Paxton was victimized by his own goof in the field and took his first loss in 10 career starts Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Paxton surrendered four runs - but just one earned - in four innings. He gave up seven runs, walked one, fanned five and threw 88 pitches. He blew a 3-1 lead in the fourth by giving up three unearned runs, courtesy of his own throwing error, a passed ball and two soft singles.

The left-hander will seek to rebound Monday against Texas.
